Last of the artified old photos and “Q” stories voting reminder

The Alphabet Challenge “Q” Stories voting round is entering the last 48 hours before it closes.

Some readers voted within a day of the stories going live, while others have a habit of getting in under the wire.

Regardless of which reader and voter you are, thank you in advance for eventually reading our stories and for eventually casting a vote for your favorite of the three. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “Alphabet Challenge Q-Stories” are HERE.<<<Link Votes will be accepted until noon on October 5th.

These posts will be very short because of stuff, but still at least two photos, and in these posts, they are photos from past posts, reworked using Topaz Impression 2.0 and Topaz Studio 1.0 . . .

A praying mantis photo from THIS<<link post. That’s one massively buggy post.

This next photo is also from what was my yard in Colorado . . .

For reasons, these photos will not be added to SmugMug until sometime next week.

No extra link today because there is one above that readers can explore.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    That’s a very interesting process you chose for the Praying Mantis . . . the result gives it a Zen quality.

  2. Both of these photos make me smile!
    The praying mantis has that “I’m not praying now, I’m preying now” look on his face. HA!
    And the autumn leaves from CO are so gorgeous!
    HUGS and Happy Sat-Day to you and Melisa!
